Guest newsletter from our friends at the Long Range Biodiversity Project
We at SAM send our well wishes for a joyful and healthy holiday season!
Congratulations to Arielle Pryzbysz, our 2020 SAM Scholarship Winner!
Arielle is a 7th year student at Memorial University studying a dual degree Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Ecology and Conservation Biology, and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Geography. She aspires to pursue a career as a tenure-track assistant professor or a research scientist at Fisheries and Oceans Canada, with a special focus on quantitative fisheries science and marine spatial habitat mapping. Arielle has and continues to demonstrate a strong sense of passion and perseverance in environmental conservation that manifests itself through a wide range of experiences and accomplishments. Her honours thesis research in 2021 will study marine invertebrate biogeography and biodiversity in Labrador and Nunavut. When she is not pursuing her research, Arielle enjoys drawing, hiking, rock climbing, and visiting museums.
We at SAM look forward to seeing what she does next.
